I lived in the S.F. Bay area and my hobby for the last ten years was making sourdough bread. I previously owned a print/copy company. I sold the printing business and spent the last 8 years doing graphics for the new home industry. The mortgage debacle effectively ended this occupation.
Well, after much waiting and other stuff, we finally got our bakery licensed yesterday! It's official, so I just thought I'd share the news with all of you. Now it's just a matter of getting back into the flow of doing all of that mixing, shaping, and baking that I've been looking forward to. Here's a photo of the main work area of the bakery which is located in the lower level of our house.

I thought that the breadmakers may enjoy this story of three elderly sisters who are still running a whole grain bakery out of their home. The youngest is 84 years old!
I think this bakery deserves to be added to the map:

The owner has quite a resume and it shows. Breads, pastries and chocolates are all fantastic.
How I love Stumbleupon! My habit of giving 'thumbs-up' to sites and recipies about bread (this one included) got me dropped on the following link. (Heck it helped me land here over a year ago as well)
I'll just quote from the page:
